Hint: The name of a binary compound which is equal to naming of a simple ionic compound. In a chemical formula, the first element is used as the name of the element and for the second element, we have to add the suffix with that element name. Here, the first element is calcium having the formula ‘Ca’ and the atomic number is equal to $20$.
The name of the compound represented by $CaC{O_3}$ is calcium carbonate having the molecular mass $100.086g/mol$. The elements present in the compound are calcium, carbon and oxygen. The calcium carbonate is a carbonic salt of calcium. Here the first element is calcium, having the formula ‘Ca’ and the atomic number is equal to $20$ and it belongs to the group two and period is four. And the calcium having an $+ 2$ oxidation state. The calcium is a s-block element.
The carbonate is a salt of carbonic acid which is having a carbonate ion. And it is a polyatomic ion having the formula, $CO_3^{2 - }$. Its conjugate acid is bicarbonate. The calcium carbonate is mainly used for hemodialysis as phosphate dialysis. And which gives temporary relief from gastric hyperacidity, heartburn and indigestion. It is also used to prevent osteoporosis.
As we know that the name of the compound represented by $CaC{O_3}$ is calcium carbonate having the molecular mass $100.086g/mol$. And it is mainly used in hemodialysis as phosphate dialysis and which gives temporary relief from gastric hyperacidity, heartburn and indigestion. And direct use of calcium carbonate may be harmful for humans.
